Well, look at this beautiful gallery of creativity!
These are the Take One Dress 2014 creations, and it amazes me that so many beautiful things have been show-cased  on my little blog.
In case you've missed it, Take One Dress was the series running on As it Seams, where each month a different blogger sewed something based on an 'inspiration' dress posted by the previous month's guest.

It's been a lot of fun!
